Every action, no matter how big or small, makes a difference!
If our region is to achieve the CQSS2030 vision and targets there’s a lot to do and we need everyone to play a part. We encourage all businesses, groups, organisations and individuals to celebrate what they’re doing and inspire others by adding their actions here.
Take a look at what’s being done, who’s been doing it, and the difference they’ve made.
The program focuses on how living in balance with ourselves, our workplace and our natural environment can not only benefit our wellbeing but also create a network of like-minded people around the globe who are committed to effecting change.
